Rise, Thou Ape

  Rise of The Planet of The Apes delivers. It’s the best summer action-type movie of 2011 so far (though I haven’t seen too many because I could tell most of them suck). It could have been completely stupid, but it’s an engaging, tense movie that builds to an action packed climax of unadulterated entertaining mayhem, and I look forward to the sequel.

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is fun if you don’t take it seriously. I suspect the purist will scoff at the creation of an entirely new Planet of The Apes that has no connection to any of the previous Ape movies. But those fans probably take Doctor Who seriously, too.
